Pickup Truck Overturns After Hitting Tractor Trailer


A Fort Drum soldier escaped injury Monday when his pickup truck hit a tractor trailer and overturned into a ditch.

The mishap occurred on Route 26 in the town of Champion at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Great Bend Fire Chief Randall Stevens said the driver of the pickup was trying to pass a tractor trailer when the pickup hit a patch of snow.

Stevens said the pickup veered in front of the tractor trailer and was struck.

The pickup left the road and rolled over into a ditch.

The soldier, whose name was not available, told the fire chief that despite being deployed to Afghanistan twice, the accident was the craziest thing he ever experienced.

7 News will pass along additional information as it becomes available.
